I think we need to have a look at what a Windows DNS server does.

Regarding the patch I agree we have a problem, we also have a bug report
for it.

But I think we need to fix it differently, we need to use rpc calls to
the NS records.

I haven't looked in details but it seems Andrew already has fixes for it.


One remaining problem is that we need a way to separate the
dns_update_list that we
as developers control and a file where the admin can add custom values.
